The revised route of our Snowman Trek took us through a wider array of altitudes and climate zones than originally planned. It was springtime in the Himalayas, and we saw an incredible array of blooms—dozens of species of rhododendrons, whole fields of primula, tiny micro-flowers growing in soil crusts, and thousands of irises in every shade of purple. As we moved through different regions, we discovered a continuing succession of new flowers: blood red orchids, spotted cobra lilies, and ever more rhododendrons. Bhutan has more varieties of rhododendrons than almost anywhere in the world. So for today…just lots of flower photos!
